" is following what appears to be another public split between john boehner and eric kantor over immigration reform at this time. in his weekly conference, house speaker boehner refused to endorse the receipt support of giving immigrant children a pathway to citizenship. >> i top the do everything i can to foster this continuing conversation in a bipartisan fashion to deal with what is say very difficult issue in our country. it is worthy of consideration. >> in a speech yesterday, kantor endorsed the dream act that he voted against in 2010. >> one of the great founding principals of our country was that children would not be punished for the mistakes of their parents. it is time to provide an opportunity for legal residents and citizenship for those who are brought to this country as children and know no other home. >> the last time the pair split over the fiscal cliff deal, kantor voted against it and even more significant because it involves outreach for a key voting brought. we know the republicans want to bring into the foelld. kelly, it is fair to say speaker boehner praised eric kanto

second term? >> well, the first go around back in the summer of 2011 he and john boehner went behind closed doors met in secret, cooked up what became known as the grand bargain. he had given entitlement cuts, boehner would find $800 million in revenue and that worked well until joe biden maybe accidentlily told eric cantor the number two republican and the bile rival with boehner that they were holding negotiations, and he didn't like that. they pushed everything down at the election creating at the time the fiscal cliff which was as one person in our film called a suicide event strapped on to the economy and waiting to be detonated. after the election obama sits down with boehner. they wait until the middle of december because obama has been slow walking boehner's proposal were right after the election. and the president is pretty tough. he doesn't want to give anything that he was giving away back in the grand bargain talk. and he doesn't think boehner at $800 billion is giving him enough. that's a signal right there that things are not going to go well back in december, and we kn

that disproportionately benefit very wealthy people. speaker john boehner said he could come up with $800 billion through a tax reform plan. we're simply saying to the house republicans that we want to do with speaker john boehner said he could do. use some of their revenue from closing loopholes to close the deposit. you are right. republicans so far have said they're not willing to close one tax loophole, not for a corporate jet for big tax -- big oil companies for the purpose of reducing the deficit. when it is that trade-off, are they more interested in protecting the economy and defense spending? then i think he will begin to see a little bit of a change in attitude. >> what is there is not a change in attitude and calculations? this deadline is different than previous ones. we were facing the prospect of a default. it was a stone wall. we could not afford to hit it. where were facing taxes immediately going up. it was a pretty hard stonewall we could not afford to hit. this time, they're saying we really do not want this to happen, but if it does it is the other guy's fault. is that kind of what we

. and then there was speaker boehner. >> the house on two occasions has passed a plan to replace the sequester. it's time for the senate democrats to do their work. it's time for the president to offer his ideas. >> it's hardly surprising that the speaker sounds bored by the very words coming from his very own mouth because it is the self-same rhetoric that republicans have been spouting for ages. >> the president's budget is late again. >> it is a bill that, frankly, says to the president, you know, please join us in doing your job. >> and he's missed the deadline for out of five times. >> and the president, we hope he takes up a superman cape and sends up a serious plan. >> sorry. back at the white house, the president was offering yet another simple explanation for why indiscriminate cuts without any additional revenues makes no sense at all. >> we can't just cut our way to prosperity. deep, indiscriminate cuts to things like education and training, energy and national security will cost us jobs. >> of course, the architect for the republican position on the economy has been congressman paul ryan, who

revenue. they believe they can shift the blame this time to president obama. today, speaker boehner's office was sending around "call obama sequester's bluff." republicans should continue to refuse to make any concessions or compromise with the white house, he says, even write iing script for them. we are quite prepared to cut elsewhere but we already raised taxes last month. if the presses wants to avoid the sequester as we do, he must offer a substitute set of cuts. otherwise, mr. president, there is nothing to discuss. your sequester, republicans need to reiterate the sequester was the president's idea in the first place, will go ahead. the sequester was the president's idea? that's what the republicans want you to believe. the speaker's office has even created the #obamaquester. let's travel back in time to the great ceiling debt debacle of 2011. here is what president obama was demanding. >> at minimum we've got to raise the debt ceiling. so, that's the bare minimum that has to be achieved. >> here is what john boehner and the republicans in the house were demanding. >> the hou

boehner called sequestration a bad idea. he says it was forced upon republicans by president obama. >> it is taking a meat ax to our government and many programs in national defense. >> experts warn the impact would be especially felt in the washington area. >> i am very concerned about it. >> this car salesman says he is optimistic. >> so far we have not seen much of a decline. we don't really see a decrease in sales, but possibly in the near future, yes. >> house speaker john boehner alleges it was because president obama wanted to avoid making tough cuts during a presidential campaign. the white house and democratic leaders say they had an offer and republicans walked away. >> as we told you earlier a show of force in annapolis today as thousands of gun rights members gathered outside and inside the capitol building. the governor wants to ban assault weapons and create stricter licensing requirements for guns. horace holmes is indianapolis tonight. please bring us up-to-date on this story. >> they are still meeting in testifying here in the state house. we talked about the gover

john boehner. >> i know that chairman issa is interested in moving the postal reform bill. i know that they're having bipartisan conversations about how to do this. and i would hope that the congress would act in a timely fashion. >> really? so in other words, mr. boehner, you're willing to step forward and get rid of this line item in the budget that is strangling the post office? here is the reality. there is some bipartisan movement here on the post office. democrats and republicans, they want to stop this service reduction. democratic congressman gerry connolly and republican sam graves, well, they sent a letter to the postmaster general to keep saturday service. hold it, folks, what is he going to do? he can't do it. his hands are strapped. it's the congress. the congress has to move on this. south dakota congresswoman and tea party favorite kristi noem, who has been asked to be on this program, uh-oh, she fell off the bandwagon. she is also trying to stop it. she said i understand that serious changes need to take place to make the united states postal service financially vi

boehner has a different view on the realities of negotiating with obama than he did before. it's like lucy with the football. you think you have taken care of the revenue piece. not going to raise revenues through loophole raisings and restructuring. now they're back. there is no amount of tax increase. it will be carbon taxes, vat taxes. there is an unlimited appetite for increased revenue, not achieved the way you and i would like to achieve increased revenue by growing the pie, doubling the salaries of everybody and increasing revenue that way. they do it through games of rate increases and closed loopholes without the necessary underlying tax reform. >> they have a rate increase and closing loopholes. the idea was rate cuts. they didn't really forget it. >> any more than he forgot jobs in his inaugural address. >> what i see in the same day is a scary thought. on the afternoon of the super bowl i see the president talking tax hikes. that morning on one of the sunday news shows i see harry reid talking tax hikes. once again, the democrats want to raise taxes. isn't that true? that's the

down spending and debt. john boehner has to be seen in a new light. he's no longer the leader of the republicans in the house. he's a coalition speaker, a little bit like ramsey mcdonald, the prime minister of britain after the labor members all ran out on him, stayed in office held up by the conservatives. boehner now speaks for the democrats and a handful of republicans. i opposed higher taxes. >> should boehner be replaced? >> well, i don't -- a fight of that sort now would be destructive. i believe boehner and the republicans need to reclaim their fundamental legacy. if there was ever a time that we can understand that big spending and borrowing, and ratifying it by higher taxes is going to destroy the american economy just like it's destroyed the economies of japan and europe. and we have to rally behind that, and what is stopping that is that latinos and women feel they can't join the republican party even though they agree with it, because it's excluding. >> who would you most like to see leading the party for the next election? it can be a surname, a first name. >> sco

's just an outline. but house majority leader eric cantor and john boehner refused to endorse the plan, even when they were asked directly about it. >> i want to do everything i can to foster this continuing conversation in a bipartisan fashion to deal with what is a very difficult issue in our country. but, you know, it's certainly worthy of conversation. >> really? it's nice to hear john boehner call immigration reform worthy of consideration. maybe boehner and cantor don't want to pick sides in the debate over citizenship. but exit polling showed it was a key issue for voters. the latino vote helped president obama win reelection. and today a poll shows 55% of americans support legislation that creates some kind of path to citizenship. americans are ready for reform. it looks like republicans led by marco rubio are still playing games. joining me tonight los angeles mayor antonio villaraigosa. he is with us this evening on "the ed show." mayor, great to have you with us. i appreciate your time. >> great to be with you, ed. >> is marco rubio is a good leader for the republicans on im

enough about his desire to close the deal that he's been willing to keep his offer to speaker boehner on the table. so i think if we could come together and compromise, we could get the rest of the way there and stabilizing our debt, bringing our deficits way below 3% of gdp. and i think it would be unfortunate for anyone at this point to start saying that they should take an absolutist position. they can't have a penny of reven revenue. $800 billion in expenditures and loopholes that could be used to reduce the deficit. how can it be now there's not one penny? that you have to do it all in medicare, education, medicaid, but you can't find one penny of a loophole, tax expenditure even for the most well off american that could be part of a deficit reduction package. >> couldn't the other side have said that to you back in january when they actually raised taxes but they got -- they didn't get revenue? i'm sorry. they didn't get any cuts? so it's the same thing, right? because the republicans will say we already did that. we already went through the raising of the revenue. >> let's not

boehner. my view is, and i would say it is from being progressive or democrat, the country is in the battle. you can argue, is it a little bit to the upper a little bit to the right. the country is in the middle and what they expect our results. they do not expect life issues impound are just curious or a republican so i will not compromise one iota. the same thing is expected of the democratic party. host: our guest is not the president and ceo of the republican mainstream partnership, which is what? guest: it was funded by a moderate republican and it was to create a place for moderate republicans to gather and get together and talk about issues and figure out how we per going to be a constructive force within the republican conference. not enough to create a block of votes to win anything. enough to be enough of a wedge to join with a blue dog democrats to speak up and make a difference of where it needs to be. host: you can join us on the twitter page or send us an e- mail. as you look back at the 2012 election, was it the message for the messenger that failed? guest: t

the house leadership. i mean, he specifically in the interview called out boehner and the rest of the leadership and suggested that he thought that they were more moderate than the rest of the party. but i think that he feels where the country is now -- i'm sorry, where washington is now, that there are a lot of people who aren't necessarily representative of the american people. and it's his job to try to rally the american people in support of what he sees a middle of the road agenda. >> he talks a lot about public opinion needing to be moved on two issues being debated. you have the background and outside game in organizing in the digital space and gathering people. he has brought a lot of that into politics. how does he use that to achieve what he wants to? a big immigration reform bill and a comprehensive gun control bill? how does he use that outside game? >> i have to admit i'm a little skeptical. i think that there's nothing more powerful than the power of the presidency to focus the country around an idea or legislation. however, to really move enough people to support

spending cuts, the white house said that obama's budget proposals to house speaker john boehner from 2011 were very much on the table. those budget proposals, remember, include entitlement reforms that aroused immediate opposition from democrats. so obama is moving to the center. the real question is will anyone follow him there? now, there are many who argue that washington isn't really broken, it simply reflects a country that is deeply divided. if so, the issues we're talking about provide a useful set of tests. thumping majorities of americans support immigration reform. according to a recent gallup poll 72% say undocumented workers should be given green cards or citizenship. a similar percentage wanted to give more see visas to high-tech workers. or look at gun control. a recent pew poll found large majorities favor commonsense control -- universal background checks, preventing those with mental illnesses from buying guns, bans on semiautomatic and assault-style weapons. in a large diverse democracy, these are substantial national majorities. but will they translate into legislative

cuts known as sequester, the remarks hours after speaker boehner called on the white house and senate democrats for a plan to avoid the deep across the board cuts. >> the house on two occasions has passed a plan to replace the sequester. it's time for the senate democrats to do their work. it's time for the president to offer his ideas about how to replace the sequester. >> there is no reason that the jobs of thousands of americans who work in national security or education or clean energy not to mention the growth of the entire economy should be put in jeopardy just because folks in washington couldn't come together to eliminate a few special interest tax loopholes or government programs that we agree need some reform. >> our first read team notes that while republicans want to solely talk about the budget the white house does not want to be bogged down on one issue that in the past cost hem political capital. quote, the obama white house wants to overled wa's political circuits to see what it can get through congress without letting congress define what issues get addressed. joining

boehner will see, as well, there is a need to pass immigration reform. we didn't get into the logistics of what the house strategy would be. >> ryan grim is the momentum building with cantor's flip-flop, does that create more momentum? >> sure, i mean, it certainly moves one end of the debate. republicans now more or less have to be for the dream act or they're considered not part of it, anywhere near the reasonable conversation, but you know, look, if they want to put the dream act up alone and push is forward i imagine that democrats would say okay, fine. we'll do the dream act if that is all we can get. but you know, republicans are fooling themselves if they think that the dream act is going to be enough to get comprehensive immigration reform. you know, democrats are going to want legalization for everybody who is here who has not committed a crime, et cetera, et cetera, in order to give the republicans what they want in the comprehensive bill. so just the dream act is not going to be enough. budget it is a step in the democratic direction. >> let's listen to what some of this issu

that on the republican side, we heard people say they don't want to think about compromise. i remember boehner did an interview where he was afraid to use the word compromise. so hogan probably needs to advise some colleagues on the republican party. they don't think of themselves as liberal. it's easy to kovrp miez. most republican voters think of themselves as conservatives. most of them can't reach a deal. john boehner don't view the compromise as a dirty word on some lefrl. and that's the big challenge that hogan talked about. >> thank you both fwr your time tonight. and we'll keep watching the republicans doing what they're doing. you want change? wait until you see who's now supporting a major part of the president's agenda. but, first, fox news smears hillary clinton and goes into damage control. that's next. to grow, we have to boost our social media visibility. more "likes." more tweets. so, beginning today, my son brock and his whole team will be our new senior social media strategists. any questions? since we make radiator valves wouldn't it be better if we just let fedex help us to exp
